  3. By far the most frequent thought attachment in my brain are .eml files (emails). Often there are several emails for a thought representing a single discussion. If an attachment is an email in a standard file format (e.g. .eml) it would be extremely useful if instead do the file name, essential header data like date, sender and subject could be displayed.

  4. There's a lot of great public content in the brains at web brain.com, but it's difficult to find it. Please add a search feature to search by author, topic (keywords), and title.

  5. Link or embed the ability to view Attachment pics and document thumbnails in a Zooming fast passed format. Make it so that if you hover over a tag on the side of your brain item, so you quickly look through the pics like one would take a picture book and thumb through hundreds of pictures in just 2 seconds with the ability to stop
    on any one for a zoom in look,This would save me hours a day every day. Great for Graphic Artists, Photographers and anyone who use high volumes of imagery.
    This alone would double the functionality of…

  6. Imagine a "variable" tab into a Thought.
    Imagine for exemple in this tab, the variable "selling price" in $ or the variable "cost price", or another exemple "time" in days.

    Imagine I can create, in this tab, a variable which is : "sum of all the "selling price" of all the child".

    With that, I'm able to create a complete Cost Breakdown structure....and with the power of TheBrain, I'm able to create a "flexible point of view" cost Breakdown structure.

    With a variable time, I'm able to create a complete schedule.

    In fact, with this kind of feature, i'm able…

  7. When I click on a TAG to review all related thoughts, I would like
    the ability to set the focus on one of the thoughts that are displayed
    without that thought taking center stage. That way I can launch files
    attached to a child thought without having the organizational layout change. I find this view extremely useful for project management.

  8. The idea can be summarized in adding two options to open a brain depending on the thought’s privacy. First option is to open the brain privately and this will show all the thoughts in the brain. The second option is to open the brain publicly (this will be much more useful for presentation mode) in this case the brain will only show the thoughts marked as public and will hide the thoughts marked as privet.

  9. This will let me rotate my brains and see the more important ideas connected in a stellar clusters. The idea 'under work' will be bigger, closer and somehow activated. This is a basic neuronal visual structure.

  11. Right clicking on an attachment gives the option to "open thought folder", but if an attachment is linked rather than stored within the brain it will not be in the thought folder. Please add a "open containing folder" option to the attachment right-click menu that opens the folder actually containing the linked attachment in Windows Explorer/Finder.

  13. The brain is a powerfull application for organizing huge quantities of informations and medias. But when you're done, there are few possibilities to exploit the database.

    A boolean filtering on thought value, type, start time or end time, degree of completion, degree of priority, link type value, tag value that would show the resulting thoughts, and their children would really make this app wonderfull. (the definition of start and end time, degree of completion and priority for a thought is not yet possible :-))

  14. here's my 2cent.... it woud be great if you made it cost effect to lower the price to enable thebrain to work with a database... I know there's a version out there that does that, but the price is corporate... what about us individual end users? I think to tie thebrain with for example, a contact management system MS OUTLOOK (the contacts themselves! not just the calendar would be fantastic and have a greater appeal to users... my 2 cents.

  15. It's surprising that the "pin list" feature of PB does not support a sort of "wrapping." When we have many pin items, then it would be nice to see the pin items arrayed in multiple rows, like the following:

    Pin 1        Pin 2       ...    Pin N
    Pin N+1    Pin N+2   ...    Pin M
    

    I really wish PB to support the feature.

  17. TheBrain software should come with a "before and after" brain comparison tool to validate conversion of thoughts, types, tags AND ICONS, or this tool should be made available free of charge upon request.

    My most important brain (of 3 active now) was created with version 4.

    During every upgrade to a new release some thought contents (Notes and links) have been lost, and in the upgrade to version 7 many icons became disconnected from the their thoughts or thought types (I can restore thought type icons by multi-selecting... but it's kind of a pain).

    I believe that other people have…

  18. Make the icon dialogue remember favorites or recently used icons for quicker selection. Also make it possible to apply the same icon simultaneously to multiple thoughts, also to speed up selection.

  19. Many files are larger than 50mb. The limit of 50mb for file sizes prevents a true back up of your entire brain file. If you are trying to keep 2 computers synched, this poses an additional challenge requiring frequent manual backup and restore.

  20. Imagine you have two children: "John" and "Lynn" for example:

    Both under John and Lynn, you make a child-node called "school" and under the node "school" you make another child-node, called "friends". You have now
    -> "John < school < friends"
    -> "Lynn < school < friends"

    Imagine you are organizing a birthday party for John and you want to make a jump to John's schoolfriends, then you drag out a jump from the node "birthday party" and start typing "friends" in the searchbox. The searchbox will now suggest two similar lines:
    -> "friends < school"
    -> "friends < school"
